Crystals and natural stones: their qualities and metaphysical uses

Over the centuries, people around the world have been intrigued by the metaphysical qualities of stones, or more appropriately called minerals. It has been recognized that everything that exists is in a constant state of vibration, and crystalline structures have a particularly stable vibration that resists the influence of other frequencies of vibration.

Minerals, particularly in their crystalline form, stimulate healing based on the property of sympathetic vibration or resonance. They have very specific resonance points with one of our seven main energy centers (chakras). The colors of the stones seem to influence the qualities of the vibrations. This is more or less similar to the colors represented by the seven charkas that also coincide with the seven colors of the rainbow. (Crown chakra – violet, puff chakra – indigo, throat chakra – blue, heart chakra – green, solar plexus chakra – yellow), sacral chakra – orange and base chakra red). These resonant frequencies establish an electromagnetic field.

If we believe that all human beings have entangled energy bodies (human aura) beyond their physical layer, and are electromagnetic in nature, it naturally follows that they can be influenced by the electromagnetic resonance of minerals and crystals.

Diseases and illnesses have been attributed to disharmony in thought patterns, causing irregular energy flow within the subtle (non-physical), etheric, and physical bodies; therefore, prolonged exposure to the positive vibration of the stones can have a healing effect. In addition to their healing effects, minerals also offer protection against negativities and somehow bring us good luck.

Amulets and talisman to ward off ghosts.

Certain stones, especially those of heavenly origin, seem to have the power to drive away negative or unwanted energy. These are stones like those in the meteorite family (tektite, moldavite, iron or nickel meteorites) that can actually ward off evil spirits. When carved with images of Buddha or deities, or when specifically enchanted by advanced practitioners, they can be used as very powerful talismans or amulets.

Therefore, it is also believed that wearing certain amulets or talismans would protect you against ghosts. Additionally, some also feel that certain stones, especially the quartz family (white quartz, amethyst, ametrine, citrine, and smoky quartz) can offer the same protection. Other protective stones include diamond, pyrite, hematite, obsidian, black star sapphire, black diopside, and jet. Personally, I understand that stones have a varying degree of electromagnetic radiation. When used in our body, they serve to strengthen the energetic vibration of our body, as a kind of protective shield over us.

A very powerful talisman that I have is the image of the Bodhisattva Earth Store (Dichang) made of tektite. I also have a bracelet made of pyrite and amber, and I wear it whenever I travel abroad. In my arsenal, I also have iron meteorite bracelets and pendants, and they are also very powerful in warding off negativities. Those moonstones are also believed to be good protective stones for overseas travel, especially when crossing waters. I always keep a few pieces of tumbled moonstones in my luggage.

For those who are afraid of ghosts when traveling abroad and staying in hotel rooms, they can try to fix their shoes in the Ying Yang style, one with the sole up and the other in the normal position, at the foot of the bed. .

Amulets and talismans are similarly charged with strong vibrations by their creators, both monks and priests, and serve the same purpose as stones. At my level, I can magnetize stones and any object to give them stronger radiation using my energization method or by chanting mantras.

Spirits on stones

There is a belief that some stones contain memories of the past, while others become the residence of some life forms, like the hermit crabs that inhabit the shell after the shellfish have died. My spiritual friend Stella has the ability to communicate with stones and stated that she often saw mischievous looking creatures that reside in some stones. Once I was meditating with a labradorite ball (a kind of feldspar stone that is opaque with a luminous blue on a gray background) and I saw images of a woman dressed in a Greek costume in the middle of some Roman pillars within the stone. She had almond-shaped eyes and features and seemed annoyed at my untimely intrusion. There was another stone, a chunk of rhodonite, a pink stone with black manganese fillets, on which he could see images of the domed structure. I also remembered another case where an old woman handed me a piece of jade that she recovered from the exhumed grave of her long-dead mother, and asked me if it was okay for her daughter-in-law to use it. The moment I picked up the jewelry, I could feel a painful sensation in my stomach. I asked him if he remembered if his mother had some kind of stomach ailment and he confirmed it. I cleaned the stone for her, but she told me that she had changed her mind about giving it to her daughter-in-law and instead decided to keep it in the jewelry box. Jade is said to have the unusual quality of protecting its owner. It would break into pieces every time the user encountered dangerous situations; folklore says that it blocks dangers on behalf of its owner.

Stones to attract fortune

The Chinese believe that the use of certain stones will bring them good luck. Jade is the most favored stone ornament not only to bring good luck to the wearer, but also to offer protection. For those players who are always hoping for windfall profits, they can use yellow gemstones – yellow sapphire, topaz or citrine. Some may even carry a pyrite donut along with a dollar coin in their wallet. Green stones are for attracting wealth generated by running, and include not only jade but also emerald, peridot, quartz with inclusions of chloride, aventurine, malachite, and amazonite. In addition to being used as semi-precious stones set in rings and pendants, some of the tumbled stones (aventurine, malachite, and amazonite) can be placed in cash registers to help improve the daily profits of retailers.

Stones and Feng-shui

Feng-Shui, or geomancy, is a way of talking about energy as well: energy caused by the landscape, magnetic forces and fluxes, seasonal fluctuations in energy fluxes, celestial and planetary influences, and positioning of static objects in the environment, and how your own body’s energy copes with and resonates with all these energy causes. The western application of Feng-Shui is to bring a variety of scientific equipment to a place and test the various forms of energy in the area. If you are sensitive to energy, you can feel the influence of “Feng-Shui”, the “Chi” good and bad, instead of completely relying on the principles of Feng Shui practiced by masters. Since the stones have positive vibratory energy, they can be deployed to enhance the feng-shui of the building if placed in the correct position. For example, the left corner of the main hall of the house diagonally opposite the entrance is considered the wealth position; To increase the positive energy in this corner, an amethyst geode could be placed. This is a better substitute for placing round-leaved plants there, as traditionally recommended by Feng-shui masters. Aside from placing mirrors or wind chimes on our windows to block negative energy from some malformed structures or the landscape that overlooks our home, we could hang faceted cut crystal balls. Against the sunlight, these faceted balls could reflect specks of rainbow lights in the house and create a wonderful sight as they look like dancing on the walls.
